        • Laggy (animation, launching apps, etc.)

          Animations are oftem not fluid enough to complement the UI. It sounds like a minor issue but this sort of attention to detail gives a subconscious attractive feeling like IOS devices do

            • Recet apps are not working correct

              The recent apps are not working correct. A launched app appears there, but it's dismissed after a short time. Then only the options of Android appears there.

              • No badge count

                When grouping apps in the tray at the the bottom of the screen. Badge counts are not displayed. Even when you expand the group. My suggestion would be to show a red dot in the corner of the group app and the badge count once expanded.

                            We have investigated and found it is a bug since one update of Android Messages.
                            But the problem is fixed in the newest Android Messages from our verification, pls update your app and make sure the version is 2.1.163 or newer, and try again.

                            Please let’s know if there is other issue.

                          • Empty folders do not auto delete. Also folders with 1 icon stay as folders instead of reverting back to that single app shortcut.

                            Steps.
                            1. Drag app icon A onto app icon B, folder is made.
                            2. Remove app icon B from folder, app icon A stays in folder and folder stays as folder with app icon A in it instead of reverting back to app icon A.
                            3. Remove app icon A from folder, empty folder stays with no app icons and does not automatically delete itself.

                                      Thanks for your feedback.
                                      We have investigated and found it is a bug since one update of Android Messages.
                                      But the problem is fixed in the newest Android Messages from our verification, pls update your app and make sure the version is 2.1.163 or newer, and try again.

                                      Please let’s know if there is other issue.

                                    • message badge does not clear even if already read. only clears when deleted

                                      only the message badge keeps counting up even when there are no unread messages.
